InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened its first ever Holiday Inn Express hotel in Malaysia.
The launch of the new Holiday Inn Express Kuala Lumpur City Centre marks the latest stage in the budget brand’s Southeast Asian expansion, which has already seen it debut in Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore in recent years.
The new 383-room hotel is located on Jalan Raja Chulan, close to Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle district, which houses many of the city’s main commercial, retail and entertainment venues.
All guests will be offered free Wi-Fi and breakfast, plus power showers and a choice of pillows. Facilities at the hotel include a 24-hour fitness room, self-service business centre, internet stations and a laundry area.
The new hotel becomes IHG’s fifth property in Malaysia, joining the InterContinental Kuala Lumpur, Holiday Inn Kuala Lumpur Glenmarie, Holiday Inn Melaka and Holiday Inn Penang. The company also has a further four hotels in the pipeline.
There are now 15 Holiday Inn Express hotels in Southeast Asia, including two in Singapore, eight in Indonesia and four in Thailand. And the company is planning a major expansion of the brand in the coming years, with 18 more hotels under development across the region.
